House (posted by Ann)
Our good friends, Tim and Ann, have their 50th birthdays this year just like Don.
And me. Sigh.
Anyway, Ann's birthday was mid October, and so she decided to have a Halloween birthday party, costumes mandatory. I was all set to go with cow slippers, and a pig nose. I know, not the most obvious costume, but I was going for Mu Shu Pork. (At least I thought it was funny - I don't think anyone else did, but I was amused.) I ordered my pig nose on-line, and the day before Halloween I still had no pig nose. So I panicked! and went to several Halloween stores, which were awful. Miniskirted costumes that I don't think would have looked good on me at 25, and as I've mentioned I'm not 25.
Next up was JoAnn Fabrics to see what I could find, and there right by the front door was this sheer fabric with red spiderwebs - and I immediately thought of 3rd Sister's "Spider Queen" outfit, and blatantly copied it as best I could. (Thank you, 3rd Sister, for the inspiration!) Here I am with my friend Ann, who was Morticia.
There was an angel and devil, a beauty queen with the sash reading "Miss Diagnosed", and a really funny guy with an inflatable fat lady costume, smoking a cigar.
